I do not punish my son for disruptive behavior in the classroom. At least for me it depends on the way "disruptive" is defined by the teacher. When my son's teacher e-mails or calls she is not upset or even concerned about some "disruptions" that occur in the class. We work together to assist my child in learning the skills and coping mechanisms to reduceto the behaviors that are undesirable. So he talks during group and can't sit still. We came up with some ways to work around this and some tricks for us and him to use. My husband and I coach him on ways to handle certain common situations and we reherse and role play at home. I do not need to have consequences piled on him. If he needs to be removed from a group or a project then the consequence was already addressed. It doesn't mean I don't talk to him about it at home.

It just means that I don't need to make him think and feel he is a bad kid or that he is always in trouble. Now if he hit another kid or had some other incident similar to that level.....of course we would exercise some sort of consequence. I offer the teacher suggestions and trust her to handle situations that come up in the class. In other words, I trust she is a professional and is capable of doing her job. I am a partner with the teacher and a parent to my child. Which means I use discretion and look at each situation as it comes up. I don't feel the need to employee punishment for every little thing that comes up.
